Bohemian Style Painted Desk Makeover

DIY BLOGGER Old outdated vintage pine desk given a bohemian makeover via Paint stain and hardware
Hey!! Welcome back my Beauties!!
Can you believe it?
I finally had time to write up a new post!
This piece has been done for about a month but crazy kids school schedule has kept me runnin in about 10 different directions at once!
I am actually sitting at my twins orchestra concert waiting for it to start as I type this.
I picked up this desk for about $10at the local thrift shop.
It wasn't much to look at and you can see they tried to "improvise" the missing knobs with some rope.
But that didn't really work out so well.

The top had some sort of GUM residue or something FUN on top that wasn't fun to look at!

Luckily it was nothing my 
couldn't take care of.
A couple of passes with that in different grit and the top was ready to be stained and sealed.

While the top was drying I started working on the base.
Since I wanted to give it a punch of color to give it that BOHO feel I chose
A couple coats of that and it was looking better already!

Once it was all done I just grabbed some copper colored knobs to finish the piece off!
